The Dictatorship of Youssath is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory vegetarianism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 487 million Youssathians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crata. The average income tax rate is 51.5%.

The Youssathian economy, worth 23.2 trillion Youssath Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 47,590 Youssath Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, the government's approval ratings go down while its turnover rate goes up, doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, and gambling is outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Youssath's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Youssath is ranked 160,534th in the world and 556th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 11.08 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
